I downloaded WebOS Quick Install on Ubuntu but when I run the file I get the message to download the doctor, then when I am asked to choose a doctor and click ok, nothing happens.

When I did it, I had to go to the Internalz wiki and download it from there. I'm mobile, or I'd hunt the link for you.

I don't think it works with the open-source Java that is included in the default Ubuntu install.

Go to System - Administration - Synaptic Package manager. Type in your password. then search for OpenJDK. Uninstall openjdk-6-jre-headless and all of its dependent packages. Then

Then, go to Settings> Repositories. In the Other Software tab, tick the boxes for Ubuntu Partners.

Then, after reloading, search for and install the sun-java6-plugin and all of its dependencies. Reboot and you should be good to go.

No need to install both OpenJDK and Sun Java. BTW, on my 'buntu install webOS QuickInstall won't run in OpenJDK. Have to use Sun Java.

You also have to install the novacom driver for Ubuntu.
You find the link on the official SDK page or search here in the forums.

Downloaded File and when I double click on it I get a warning about an exicutable bit not set, where do I go from here? What bit needs to be set and the .jar file also is seen as a compressed zip file as well.

Any assistance would be appreciated.

You need to open up the file's properties window and tag it as executable. Then it should run with Java, rather than opening in the archive manager

When I start up the program it states that novacom needs to be installed, do I want to install yes/no. I click yes. Note that everytime I run the program I get that message. So I am uncertain if it actually installed it. When its finished installing it does say installation successful.

I don't think WOSQI is currently able to auto-install novacom on Ubuntu.
Download and install novacom from the SDK site, section "Install the SDK for Linux"
